Keeping Automotive Dealership Profit Leaks Under Control
Pentana Solutions understands that reducing profit leaks is a key area of interest for many automotive dealers. The functionality within eraPower’s showroom software allows this very thing by eliminating calculation errors on Luxury Car Tax, GST, registration costs and stamp duty. When calculating deal pricing eraPower assists sales team members by doing calculations for them and locking them down so they can’t be changed. Furthermore eraPower’s showroom software will ensure vehicle pricing is automatically entered and maintained in sync with manufacturers monthly or weekly, on top of this margins are kept up to date within eraPower via feeds on work scheduled or required from the service department.
Furthermore, dealership management can set minimum margin levels which ensures profit leaks are managed right from the get go.
The benefits of these functions are twofold, the automotive dealers’ sales consultant have more attention for the consumer in front of them and each and every deal’s margin is protected. This is a real benefit for any dealership but can have significant impact as sales volumes increase.
Visibility of Your Showroom Prospects
Automotive dealers and their management team need visibility to improve process and reward performance. Understanding the activity showroom staff are putting into prospects, regardless of conversions into sales is key because the industry understands the acquisition cost of each lead. eraPower’s showroom module highlights this sort of activity to help management stay on top of each valuable lead and renew focus when needed.

Improving Gross Profit Within Your Dealership
eraPower provides automotive dealerships with a clean way to upsell dealer accessory options.

This menu will only display accessories appropriate to a specific vehicle and include fitment in the amount. A dealership sales person can either sell each accessory to the consumer or the screen can be turned around to allow them to select which items they would like. The funnel based approach ensures each deal goes through the dealer options screen, improving gross profit one floor mat, tow bar and tinted window set at a time.
